The FTC-Iowa looks forward to the 2021-2022 FREIGHT FRENZY Season. We understand and are prepared for this season to once again be different than a traditional season.  

  • Will FTC-Iowa require face masks at events?
    Per CDC guidelines, we will be encouraging those who have not been fully vaccinated to wear a face mask at events. Please remember, there are students, volunteers and other coaches who may not be eligible to be vaccinated due to their age or weakened immune systems.

Important Information about Leagues

Generating leagues for the 2021-2022 Season was very difficult for a variety of reasons. Using the following parameters, the leagues have been generated and teams have been notified:

  1. Teams who are located at the same school, or who share a coach, are in the same league. These are considered “sister teams”.
  2. Host locations of the League Tournaments need to be leagues which most makes sense. The team from Nevada, Iowa will not be in the same league as the team from Fort Dodge, Iowa.
  3. Teams within a league needed to be within a decent distance from each other. It was ok if teams needed to drive 90 minutes, but not ok if they had to drive 3 hours.
  4. The league sizes range from 15-28 teams. 


Super Qualifier & Iowa Championship

The number of teams supported by FTC-Iowa, is now over 168, so the 2021-2022 season will include Super Regionals and a 2-division Iowa Championship.
